This is my new standing desk. Yes, it looks like an ironing board, but it’s not. It’s my latest attempt at getting a standing desk without paying crazy standing-desk prices.
My husband saw this ironing board desk at his office being used by a colleague who’s health conscious and wanted to stand during the day.
He decided to buy me one from a local office supply store for about $30 because my makeshift standing desk was getting on his nerves. It was made of puzzle boxes and crates, but the worst part was I couldn’t rest my hands on anything and ended up giving myself tennis elbow.
If you’ve read my blog for a while you know I did a standing-desk experiment in 2010 and as a result realized I would be much healthier if I didn’t sit on my big butt all day.
Little did I know my choice to not buy the expensive desk I tested out, which was over $1,000, would end up causing me carpal tunnel doom.
Anyway, now I’m on the right track and hope this new configuration will fulfill all my standing desk dreams.
